Session Americana (Boston) is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This all star band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings, a harmonica case fire damaged when Jack’s bar went up in flames and graffitied by Depeche Mode roadies, and an assortment of other instruments that get passed around in this freewheeling modern hootenanny. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session show depends on craft that’s not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American “song bag”.

Have you heard that most of our 4,000 native bee species nest not in hives but in the ground or dead wood? Did you know that caterpillars, not birdseed, are an essential part of most baby bird diets? Are you familiar with the gardening prowess of opossums and skunks, who devour insects often considered
“pests?”

Animals large and small are critical to healthy ecosystems, but sadly, the typical yard does little to welcome and support our wild neighbors. Together we can replace the mowing, leaf-blowing madness and adopt a new landscaping ethic. In this seminar, Nancy Lawson, founder of Humane Gardener and a columnist and consultant for The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), will explain how
mindful cultivation techniques and native plants can help you create a beautiful, life-sustaining garden for all animals. Event is sponsored by HSUS and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.

Prepare yourselves, ’cause the vaudevillain folk punk powerhouse Bella’s Bartok is bringing their “There And Back Again Summer Tour” to the Strange Ones at Sehkraft Brewing in Arlington, VA! Celebrate Summer and forget about everything at this insane night of music and dancing. Are you ready for this?

Sehkraft Brewing
925 N Garfield St. Suite A Arlington, VA
FREE- 21+
8:30 pm

Bella’s Bartok (www.bellasbartok.com)
To understand Bella’s Bartok, imagine what you would get if Salvador Dali and Toulouse Lautrec were fronting the Moulin Rouge’s house band, and you have the exuberant spectacle that is Bella’s Bartok. Described as “about as much fun as you can have with your pants on” (Dan Wolovick, Two Way Monologues), this 6-piece powerhouse melds Bohemian Klezmer Punk with pop sensibilities into an eminently danceable party. The diversity of musicians that make up Bella’s Bartok, combined with their boundless energy on stage, has been known to break a dancefloor, or two (or three, but who’s counting?).

Hello,

I am hosting a Happy Hour Fundraising event at Don Tito’s next Monday the 22nd to raise funds for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk coming up in DC, October 15th. This walk is huge for Best Buddies as they rely on those funds to continue to help and provide services with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I don’t know if you guys do any probono but wanted to ask if you could do a small story for advertising the HH event as well as the walk all in one? it doesnt have to be anything big, but with your large audience I think it would tremendously help us get people in and have a successful event.

As part of the Planning Committee I want to do my best to bring in revenue to support BB’s programs. Please see the links below and let me know if you would be willing to help us out or even come to the event next monday and run a small story, I am sure I will plan another HH event in Sept.

I really appreciate your time,

Regards,

Alejandra Tamez

Volunteers Needed!

The Arlington County Health Department is testing its mass medication dispensing plan on Saturday, August 20 and needs volunteers.

Who: Any willing volunteers and their families

What: Help Arlington test their ability to manage a crowd (hopefully!) while operating a rapid, non-medical Point of Dispensing (POD). We will be using two different types of candy/treat as a substitute for oral medication.

Why: Because we all need to practice how to do this and it’s very difficult to get enough people together to actually test the “crowd” aspect at a dispensing exercise! (in other words, we need your help!)

Additional Information:
• Please enter through Door #10 (or as indicated on the day of the event)
• There will be plenty of free parking
